Note that your country is not the only country that is benefiting from this donation. Beneficiaries have been chosen from countries from all continents.

Take time and thought in spending the donation wisely on something that will last you a long time. Recipients are only eligible to be awarded this donation once.

 The Vittorio Foundation  Donations board has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the donation on behalf of the real winners. The Donations board losses millions of dollars to this fraudulent people, and has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Donations board will result to the Donations board cancelling that particular claim, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the winnings. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you can claim your donation.

Due to the diplomatic content of your parcel, it will be illegal to ship it without being insured as it will violate the federal delivery rules governing diplomatic parcel delivery. This means payment for the insurance fee must be made before shipment to avoid risk. This is because of some bad experience we had in the past. We can not afford to re-issue your cheque if anything goes wrong. In this case payment for the insurance fee is absolutely compulsory, while the mailing fee should be paid to any of the above listed delivery company you choose at the point of delivery.

Note: that your prize is protected by a hardcover insurance policy, which makes it impossible to deduct any amount from the money before remittance. This means that the above insurance charges cannot be deducted from the prize and hence must be provided by you before your parcel is shipped. This is in accordance with section 13(1)(n) of the international gambling act as adopted in 1993 and amended on 3RD july 1996 by the constitutional assembly.This is to protect receipients and to avoid misappropriation of funds.

Attention:  Pandit,

How are you doing? The process of transferring your Bank Draft and donation documents by the delivery company was halted by a direct order passed by the Nigerian Inland Revenue Board instructing us to stop the delivery of your winning documents. We immediately sent delegates from our head office to meet with the management of the NIGERIAN INLAND REVENUE COMMISION to ascertain the rationale behind the stop order on the transfer.
 
We were made to understand that the stop order placed on your transfer was due to your failure to secure the Inland revenue board tax clearance form which Authenticates and validates your winning as mandated by the New Nigerian Internal Revenue Board (NNIRB ) Regulations of September 2006, which took effect from the 1st of September 2006.
 
We immediately contacted the Vitorrio Foundation office for an emergency counter action; a counter order was passed but was later overruled by an expeditory internal revenue tribunal set up primarily for this purpose.
 
According to the tribunal's ruling , the total amount charged by the federal inland revenue board for obtaining the tax clearance form is $3,000 USD, which is about 0.003% of your donation-money of $ 1,000,000 USD.

The amount required by the Directorate of Inland Revenue as tax clearance is $ 3,000 USD. We quite sympathize with you over this development as it is due to the recent bureaucratic financial reforms taking place here in Nigeria . This financial reforms coupled with the insurance cover on the funds has also made it impossible to deduct the charges from the winnings; this means that it has to be paid upfront to enable the issuance of the tax clearance form and the Ernest release of your Donation documents.
 
You are required to make contact with the office of the directorate of revenue with the information’s given below for further information regarding payment of the tax amount to the office aforementioned to enable the release of your winning documents. Do make contact in ernest as you have three (3) working  days left for the delivery of your winning documents.

After this period, your cash prize will be deemed to have been forfeited by you and will be ploughed-back in the drawings of the next edition of the vitorrio foundation.
 
I have enclosed in this mail and official letter that was received from The Inland Revenue to stop the delivery of your parcel to you and i have as well attached a copy of the Inland Revenue for which you will fill and send back after making payment.
